We get letters....

I recently discovered that my great grand-father was an employee of SD&A Railway. 

Could you recommend where I could find information on the earliest years of SD&A Railway?
His name was Erastus "Ras" Craig. He moved from Texas about 1895 to the Stockton, CA area. He is listed as a SD&A "road master" in the 1910 US Census. He died about 1918, perhaps on the job or a victim of the influenza epidemic. 

You have an interesting web site. I don't know anything about model systems but do like the history that you include. 

Thanks for any suggestions,
